A new (old) movie theater has (re)opened


I forgot to mention some big local cinema news last week: the former Landmark Edina cinema has officially reopened as Edina 4, under the ownership of local chain Mann Theatres. If you ever wanted to hear your confused grandparents talking through Brothers, this is your chance! (Seriously, I’m excited about this news and can’t wait to visit.)
